Re: Q: Wireless Remote Commander

For fireworks or often for things that you need a remote trigger for it's best to set the camera to manual focus first. If the camera cant find focus it may not fire so its best to avoid this problem.

Even the cheapest IR remote (copies) have a replaceable watch-type battery but they last ages anyway.

Negatives, you cant do rapid fire, or multi-bracket exposures with the IR remote. They do allow for a 2 second delay but nothing else is settable from the camera. A little on the short range and front-facing connection (receiver) only.

Positives are that they work as a great wireless trigger, easy to pocket (rather than a dangling wired trigger) and work reliably given the above conditions.
